incoherent. american defenses were low and there was aimed the demobilization after world war ii. so it really took the korean war to create all the policies that we now see that is the permanent standing army, the huge defense budgets, the perception of the block and the idea that any communist victory anywhere is somehow a threat to american national security. all of that came about because of the curry in war and also because of the korean war there was a collision between government and defense industry. and so, the start of birth of the military-industrial complex that eisenhower leader warned the nation against in the military industrial 1861. for china the effect of the korean war was also a profound because the laws during the korean war we must remember that first china fought the world's greatest superpower to a standstill and that created a huge prestige for mao of the end of the century of humiliation in a sense. but there was also during the korean war then you start to see the campaigns that become very familiar later on in the great move forward and the cultural revolu
